#22246 closed Bug (wontfix)

WizardView.form_list is undocumented

Reported by: django-issues@… Owned by: nobody
Component: Documentation Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


The WizardView documentation neither documents or provides an example of how to specify which forms the wizard is comprised of. This is made even more confusing by the fact that WizardView.get_form_list() returns an OrderedDict rather than the list one might expect.

This is not actually factually true. As of 1.6, when form_list feature was actually introduced, the documentation does mention it, but only as an alternative to providing them as an argument to as_view(), and only as the very last thing you should do. That still seems inadequate — rolling through the documentation in order, you would end up blind-faithing your entire view until you get to that final step.

I am not sure what you mean by "blind-faithing your entire view until you get to that final step"? Could you make a specific suggestion to improve the documentation or supply a patch? I'll be happy to review it.

Could you open a ticket again the new django-formtools repository? The details of your request aren't clear to me so I don't feel comfortable doing it myself, thanks.
